The Fat Innkeeper


“Perfect.” – Ocala Star Banner

“Quite hilarious.” – The Pittsburgh Post Gazette

“Ebullient and irresistible.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Dr. Thomas Kingsbury was found murdered in the Hotel California.  Kingsbury was attending the Union of Near-Death Experiences Retreat (UNDER).  Unlike other attendees, Kingsbury did not believe in near-death experiences.  Truth be told, Kingsbury believed in very little and earned his reputation through debunking the paranormal.  The resort hotel has 711 rooms; the hotel detective suggests there are about 710 suspects.
